If I have a replication factor set up as 3 and I want data replicated across data centers would I get 3 replicas per DC or is each replica placed in a different Data centers?

The strategy options dictate how many replicas go to each datacenter.

[default@unknown] create keyspace ks33 placement_strategy =
'org.apache.cassandra.locator.NetworkTopologyStrategy' and strategy_options=[{0:2,1:2}];

This means two copies in datacenter 2 and two copies in datacenter 1.
